Drake once said, “We live in a generation of not being in love, and not being together, but we sure make it feel like we’re together,” and the sad part is, it’s somewhat true. The concept of love and soulmates has changed drastically with social media and dating apps coming into play. Some may even argue that it doesn’t really exist anymore, which is just sad. So to restore our faith in the system of romance, we asked Malini’s Girl Tribe when was the exact moment they knew they had found their soulmate aka “The One”, and their responses melted our hearts.
Most men can be guarded when it comes to being honest about a personal issue, especially when it’s something most men feel ashamed or embarrassed about. If he tells you about this, it means he trusts you a lot. Trust is extremely important in any relationship and even more important when it comes to your soulmate.
This is when you really know that you’ve found “The One”. If you can see a future with them and instead of feeling anxious, worrying about the commitment, picturing worst-case scenarios you feel calm and composed, you know they’re your soulmate. There’s no doubt about it.
When someone loves you, they should love all of you. They should love everything about you, no matter how common or bizarre it is. It’s rare to find someone who not only tells you not to change, but also doesn’t make you want to change. If you’ve found someone like that, chances are you’ve found your soulmate.
If you’re a meat-lover, you know how difficult (and painful) it is go vegan. Giving up meat for a plant-based diet is extremely hard. If someone is willingly replacing tender chicken breasts for a slice of tofu, they truly do love you. And when someone does that just to make you happy, they’re a keeper.
Many women are often judged based on their past, especially when it comes to their romantic relationships. In Indian society, some traditional mindsets make a woman feel small or embarrassed if she’s had a rocky romantic past. However, when a person doesn’t judge you because of it and loves you all the same, it really is wonderful.
Standing up to your family when it comes to someone you love is not easy, especially when they disapprove of your relationship. If a person s doing that for you it means they really love you and see a genuine future with you. It’s a sign of trust as well and straight-up soulmate material.
People who recognise and support a woman’s right to work and be career oriented are keepers. It means they respect your desire to work and will never expect you to succumb to stereotypes that revolve around Indian woman. They know that a woman’s place isn’t in the kitchen, but in her office. Furthermore, if a man is willing to give up his job so that you can pursue yours, he’s definitely the one!
Yeah bad boys are cool, but have you ever had a man watch Titanic and cry more than you? If a man is sensitive, it means he’s comfortable expressing his emotions and feelings around you. We’d pick this over being men putting on a macho exterior and behaving coldly any day! If he gets hurt easily, chances are he will make sure to never hurt you either.
The above has restored our faith in soulmates and given us hope that they really do exist. When was the exact moment you knew you had found the one? Share it with us in the comments below!
